BASEBALL IS STILL A SPORT
The title of this article is true because baseball still has its anti-trust exemption. As fans read articles in newspapers and magazines about baseball they are always referenced to millions of dollars.
It is hard for fans to understand that baseball is a sport and not “Big Business”. Big business was a term used by politicians about 1880, and many were “Trust Busters”. Remember The Sherman Anti-Trust Act passed in 1890.
Mike Moore has retired as President/CEO of The National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues (minor leagues) and several articles appearing in the Baseball America publication gives him much credit for helping MLB keep their anti-trust exemption by appearing in congress during 1990.
It appears that most of the “Trust Busters” died around 1920 and That’s the way most of us see it at this time.
